GUYS! We can now learn what our Patronus animal would be if we lived in the wizarding world of Harry Potter! All registered Pottermore users will have to wonder no longer!
The Patronus Charm, which was introduced to us in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is a defensive spell used against soul-sucking Dementors. The spell produces a silver animal guardian that is unique to witch or wizard casting it. Harry’s Patronus is a stag, Hermione’s is an Otter, and Ron’s is a Jack Russell Terrier. But you already know this. What you don’t know is yours.
The quiz takes you on an animated journey through some dark woods, giving you a series of choices, based on a set of cryptic prompts written by J.K. Rowling herself, with which you best associate yourself. Your answers are actually timed and you can only discover your Patronus once. So…no pressure.
There are numerous forms that a Patronus could take, whether it be a familiar animal or, in rarer cases, a magical creature. Once you’ve discovered your Patronus animal, you’ll be able to share your results with your friends on social media, read all about the Patronus Charm (written by J.K. Rowling), or go back and visit your Patronus. The latter you can do at any time.
Rowling even shared her own Patronus today on Twitter:
